Colorado has the great sand dunes, mesa verde, rocky mtn. national park, black canyons, colorado national monument, garden of the gods, san juan mountains, etc. it also has the four corners national monument of the southwest. so if your looking for many natural southwest type of scenic beauty, than i'd say colorado or other southwest states. but if your looking for the ocean and other mountains and stuff, i'd say the PNW is your choice. i am sure the PNW is very beautiful as well.
So I take it you're unfamiliar with the terrain of Eastern Oregon? Everything you describe as Colorado having, can be found in Oregon as well. Plus a coastline.

Oh good lord. You needn't be so literal. The terrain. Similar terrain. Not a hard concept.

In fact this year Denver was a major Democratic state, electing both Democratic governor and house and senate. The demographics here are shifting.. maybe not in the entire state but definitely in Denver metro. Take a look at the city itself, you'll probably love it.
I honestly do not understand where people get the notion that Denver is "conservative". I find Denver to be a more mature and open minded city, and is thus more politically diverse (Cant say that about Portland.) Perhaps these people
are moving to Douglas County and calling it Denver.
